I'm Baaack... I'm Baaack In The Saddle Again...



Okay... so the Post Hook Title was done in my best Steven Tyler Aerosmith Impersonation... I hope you 'got' that?  *Winks*  It's been a Crazy few days in Mi Vida Loca as was evidenced by my total lack of Storyline or Words to previous Posts and just regaling you with the pretty pictures and brief narratives instead.   I've had two Emergency Room visits with Loved Ones in the past four days.  The Son is now Hospitalized with serious health issues as they immediately admitted him during his ER visit, so I didn't get out of there until after Midnight and the long commute Home took another hour and a half from the far East Side.   And The Young Prince will be fine, but that was one we didn't get out of the ER until after 5 a.m., sleep is so overrated anyway, right!?  *LOL*  Here is a recent pix of The Young Prince voguing for the Camera with his new Glasses, which he almost lost 2 weeks after I bought them... but Thankfully recovered the other day from where he'd forgotten them at, since a Friend found them for him!  *Whew!*  That Kid may be a Genius but I swear he'd lose his Head if it wasn't attached to his Shoulders!  Right now he's in his Steampunk Phase, which is kinda Cool and so yeah, I did buy him that snazzy Steampunk ensemble which he looks mighty Handsome in... he can pull off the Eccentric Styles just fine since he wears them with Confidence.



I was pleasantly Surprised that The Young Prince's Medical Insurance and Pharmacy Prescription Coverage didn't get dropped when he turned 18, Whew, Thank You Jesus... holding my breath for that one during the ER Visit and subsequent spendy Tests and trip to the Pharmacy for what the ER Doc had prescribed.  It's not like I had the Cash on hand should they have said... Ma'am, we're sorry, this Card is now invalid... so color me Happy, eternally Grateful and relieved as Hell!  He did now have to sign off on everything himself just like a Man... and approve all his own treatments and med regimen.  When you have the SMI Adult that is always some scary shit, they are inclined sometimes to refuse or decline everything in the way of Treatment and Meds, just because legally now they just can and sound judgment is not always something the Seriously Mentally Ill have as a particular strength at times.  But since he'd rolled me out of bed at 3 a.m. with his Medical Emergency and I told him to just sign every paper they shoved in front of his face, he obliged... knowing I'd have perhaps one hour of sleep between that ER visit and his Sister's scheduled Doc Appointment!  Which ended by the way barely in time for me to dump her off at Home and get to Work my shift that Night!




So, what else has been going on... or going sideways... you might ask?  Well, I got the first of the Neg E-Mails from Princess T's Teachers this Year, knew that was coming, it's a Given.  She still can't read, it's the 7th Grade now... and she doesn't Qualify for some Special Ed Services since she's too High Functional... but that doesn't mean the Mainstream Classes are necessarily gonna work out Swell for her tho', just sayin'!   So now they don't have Real Books, they are in some Museum called the Library nowadays I guess and so now you have to enter some Online Portal to Read... which my Old Computer won't load... and I'm unable to get into the Parent Portal... so... we'll be requesting an Old Fashioned face to face Consultation with said Reading Teacher.  She's so far behind now she'll never catch up and the After School Classes she dreads for Tutoring, since she's already exhausted after a full day of School, aren't really Helpful enough.  And she's turning 13 this Month so the Teen Angst and being misunderstood are at their heightened State, so that, along with Learning Disabilities, makes School this Year kinda a version of Pergatory and Hell for us both!  She's also wearing lots of baggy clothing as her body matures and she's self conscious about it, she's not yet ready for all the attention turning into a Young Woman is foisting upon her.  So as The Young Prince astutely observed, my Little Sister is dressing like she's a Heroin Addict even tho' it's still 108 degrees outside, she's in a long sleeve baggy Hoodie! *LMAO*  She said she wanted either Bunnies or a Hamster for her 13th Birthday, this was as far as I was willing to go, fake Bunny Keychains!   Hey, it's real freakin' Rabbit fur she can stroke and pet, and I'm already Dealing with a high maintenance fussy temperamental Chameleon that drowns her Live Food when she's bored with it, so don't judge!  *Smiles*




I will REALLY be looking forward to the respite of attending the 'Wicked Faire' Halloween Themed Event at The Sweet this Month because frankly, September didn't actually go as Planned already.   Like any Month actually does, right?  Who am I kidding, nothing has gone as Planned for a very long time, so one would think I'd be used to that Subject To Change Without Notice Lifestyle we seem to be living in Real Time constantly.   And since Princess T has requested that for her 13th Birthday ALL she wants is to Hang Out with me at The Mall and spend my Money, well, Pray for me!  *LMAO*   I asked her if she wanted to bring a BFF along on the Great 13th Birthday Mall Adventure and she said, are you kidding me, then you'd have to spend Money on HER... nuff said, that's my Wednesday Addams Grandchild!   She'll claim I'm not getting to Hang Out with her enough... and then when we go somewhere for allegedly Quality Girl Time Together Hanging Out she'll have the countenance of someone being Tortured!  She'll roll her Eyes at everything I say, sigh heavily and often, look Morose and Bored out of her Mind... yet, we're Hanging Out and allegedly she Wants and Needs that from me... I think her actual intent is to Torture someone and I'm the nearest and most Willing Victim?  *LMAO*





This is DEFINITELY her when she asks me to Hang Out with her more and then her Countenance when we do!  *Bwahahahahaha!!!*





This is DEFINITELY her when it's 108 degrees outside and we're getting ready to go out and she comes down dressed all in Black, which I know will be hot as Hell and draw the heat... with long sleeves and is a totally weather inappropriate ensemble!




This is DEFINITELY The Face we get every Morning...




And THIS is why she got her Nickname Princess T... natch... I know you could clearly SEE the uncanny resemblance of my Princess T to Wednesday Addams... they could in fact, be the same Child!

    1. I'm am hanging in there... Princess T's Tutoring Class was Today and she wasn't as opposed to it as initially so perhaps she'll catch up enough to feel confident and not give up. I thought my Grandson looked pretty Fabulous too, but then, I'm totally biased... ha ha ha.
